Beach House Share Their Dark and Dreamy New Album, ‘Depression Cherry’
One of the side effects of dream pop is that it doesn't translate all that well to massive festival stages. That's what Beach House said, at least, in a press release for their upcoming fifth album, Depression Cherry – which is now streaming below (via NPR).
The duo (Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally) said: "With the growing success of Teen Dream and Bloom, the larger stages and bigger rooms naturally drove us towards a louder, more aggressive place; a place farther from our natural tendencies... In general, this record shows a return to simplicity, with songs structured around a melody and a few instruments, with live drums playing a far lesser role."
That'll make a lot more sense once you listen to the album, which drops Aug. 28 via Sub Pop.
